On Sunday, the 8th of September, I clocked 25. Asides being a landmark year, I have a lot of reasons to be thankful and in a better place than I was by this time last year. Most importantly, I’ve grown spiritually and in loving others.
Yay! Hope you enjoyed refreshing old posts with me for May. I’m going to be posting my updated hair care regimen. I cut my hair (before picture at the end) because it was hard to manage as I got very busy, however, I managed to grow about 5 inches from January to June. This regimen is subject to change but this is what works for me currently as a busy professional in the Nigerian (Lagos) climate, with 4b/4c hair, high-porosity and high-density hair trying to retain length.

Yesterday, I was at a wedding party when a little girl of about 3 (I think) tugged at my gown and wanted me to carry her. I looked up and saw her father smiling and gesturing that I could carry her.

This is the first post on my blog and I’m excited about it! I was born in Lagos, Nigeria to an Igbo father and Yoruba mother. I’m very proud of my heritage, as only a few people in this world can boast of having the rich genes of the Igbo and Yoruba people in one body. I like to describe myself as an ambivert since I don’t fit in either category of extrovert or introvert.
